Picking the right metal roof color seems like a daunting task with so many colors available. Your metal roof color will greatly impact the look and feel of your home so choose carefully. So, take some time and research each color as well as consider the practical and aesthetic factors that are associated with various colors. Here are some things to consider to make the most out of finding the perfect metal roof color for your home:
1. Style of your home
You may want to consider how your metal roof will look with the rest of your home. Pick a color that appears on your home already or one that is natural in the landscape. It’s best to go with a color that compliments existing visuals around your home. A good rule of thumb is to pick a color you know you will be pleased with years down the road, as your metal roof will last for years.
Tip: Pick your favorite color and ask for samples. Take a look at them throughout the day when there’s differences in light in order to pick a color you will love at any time of day.
2. Desired feel
If you want your metal roof to look and feel more classic, you may want to go with a color that is more complimentary which will create a monochromatic scheme. On the other hand, if you desire to stand out, you may want to chose a color that stands out and bring attention to your home.
Choosing a dark or light color will hugely impact the overall look of your house. A dark color can make a tall home look less dominating while a light colored metal roof can make your home appear taller. You may also want to go with a light color if your home has a shallow pitch.
Take a walk around your neighborhood and take note of visual cues of other homes. While you want to pick the metal roof color you like the most, you also don’t want to be a blot on your neighborhood.
A lot goes into deciding on a metal roof. From shape to color, you want your home to be representative of you, and by choosing the right color, you are well on your way to accomplishing just that.
